New Lenses
As suspected the new Canon EF 24-70 f/4L IS will be announced. This lens should appears as a kit lens with the upcoming EOS 6D. The other lens isn't a new 50mm at this time, it's actually going to be a new EF 35 f/2 IS. Pricing will also be higher than the previously unconfirmed suggestions.
